OK, folks. Father’s Day is coming this weekend. What are you buying for your dad or the father figure in your life? Haven’t figured that out yet? Look no further. In fact, let’s go with something he’ll love, something that’s a true summer style essential. Which begs the question: What does summer style mean to you and the father figure in your life? Does it mean stylish linen shirting, tailored shorts, clean sneakers and a cold beer in hand? Does it mean an adventure-ready watch teamed with a go-anywhere classic tee and rugged denim? Or perhaps … something else? Whatever it means to you, I guarantee this week’s edition of The List has summer style essentials aplenty, and gear you’ll both love. Let’s get to it.
